This week the Microsoft news were all about the MSIgnite event and the many announcements made at the event. From Azure Arc to Project Silica, from multi-cloud hybrid services deployment and management to science-fiction grade storage technology, pretty much every tech topic was covered. IoT was at the party, because as everyone knows, no one leaves IoT in the corner (you see what I just did here?).
Here is your weekly digest for Microsoft IoT news and latest projects so you can keep up and impress your friends and family while engaging in casual conversations, because we have to admit that we'd all rather talk about IoT than the weather, right? I have a perfect transition for you when you will chat with your neighbor Saturday morning:
"Hey great weather this morning Bob, right? Talking about weather, did you hear that Microsoft is partnering with AccuWeather to bring weather data to Azure Maps?"
Or you can go:
"Man, you remember when you asked me to upgrade your PC's graphical card so you could play Halo? Well now they put these NVIDA GPUs on tiny sub-$100 devices running Azure IoT Edge and hooked up to a webcam to do real-time objects recognition. Ain't that cool?"
Another conversation could go:
"Honey, I really think we should get ourselves some of these FarmBeats sensors and put them in the backyard to optimize our vegetables harvest next summer."
"We don't own a farm honey."
Here is your weekly digest.
